IN THIS ISSUE: Photographers, “The Out100,” page 74 Provenance: Miami, Fla. and Phoenix, Ariz., respectively Instagram Handle: @jucophoto Inspiration: We are inspired by things everywhere all the time. We both find inspirations at the beach and at thrift stores, and we are very lucky to be surrounded by friends that are truly talented and doing amazing things. Behind the Shoot: This story was backbreaking, but there were really beautiful moments sprinkled in. We were especially excited about shooting Shaun Ross as Keith Haring, and Sam Smith was one of the most lovely people we shot. And Don Bachardy’s studio was incredible—he was a total pleasure to be around. We really lucked out on all of the cover shots. Every subject gave so much to us in terms of expression and collaboration.› SHANA NOVAK IN THIS ISSUE:…

ON ALAN TURING AND OTHER LUSTFUL COCKMONSTERS Johnlocked, per the excellent Urban Dictionary, refers to fans who fantasize about a romantic relationship between Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick, John Watson. The popular online dictionary helpfully supplies some context: Friend: OMG I just finished watching Sherlock and i love it! Friend 2: Do you ship Johnlock? Friend: Bitch, please I am Johnlocked! As we in the LGBT community know only too well, there are worlds within worlds. Every community can be broken down into separate constituencies. Take our November cover star, Benedict Cumberbatch, best known to millions as the star of the hit BBC series Sherlock. There are fans of Cumberbatch, and there are super fans. And then there’s the Johnlock community, those who labor at writing fan fiction in which Sherlock and John Watson fulfill less…

strength in numbers

I’ve written before about the profound role played by LGBT writers Edmund White and David Leavitt in unlocking my identity as a teenager. This was the predawn of the Internet, when books alone, it seemed, had the power to let you know that others like you existed. You need only look through this year’s OUT100 to see how much has changed. Take our four cover stars. Three of them—Ellen Page, Sam Smith, and Samira Wiley—were not even publicly out at the beginning of the year; the fourth, Zachary Quinto, came out in 2011. Guess what? The sky didn’t collapse! On the contrary: Quinto’s career has flourished. Hollywood bean counters still clinging to outdated ideas of what fills seats in theaters would be wise to remember that the dinosaurs died out—fast.

WHAT A RIP-OFF! If you know Out, you know we don’t have an original bone in our gay bodies. So when we set out to shoot the most compelling LGBT people of the year for our annual OUT100 portfolio, we turned our gaze to the past, calling on other arty people’s iconic images—like these ones! Now, stop judging us and go find our photographic tributes on page 74. (They’re better than the originals anyway.) 900+ The approximate number of versions recorded of the classic weeper “Send in the Clowns.” For a bit on the latest, from legendary rocker Bryan Ferry, turn to page 32. 86,063 The number of votes cast in this year’s OUT100 Readers’ Choice poll.
